Guided by light, I shoot simply, honestly.
I am a photographer, a builder, a baker, a craftsman, a creator.

Made in Portugal, born in New Jersey, I studied art in high school where I was introduced to photography. From there I obtained my BFA in photography at Pratt Institute followed by a pastry degree at the Institute of Culinary Education.

My passion for photography and food naturally led to food photography and has fueled my love for travel and exploration of different cultures and their cuisines.

I’m currently based in Brooklyn but the world is my home.
